The New York Mets travel to Colorado for a weekend series with the Colorado Rockies. All odds for all games can be found by visiting Oddsmaker Sportsbook.
The Rockies return home and find themselves in the thick of the NL West race. They are 5-5 on their last 10 games overall and are just 3.5 games in back of the red hot Dodgers. As a team the Rockies are hitting .251 on the season and the pitching staff ERA sits at a respectable 4.36. In the first game of the series vs. the Mets they will send Drew Pomeranz to the hill who comes into the game with a 6.75 ERA in 9 innings of work in 2 starts thus far.
The New York Mets have shown improvement over last year for sure. The NL East is a tough division, but as of now the Mets are keeping pace. They have won 3 games in a row and are 3.5 games in back in the division just as the Rockies are. David Wright, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, and Daniel Murphy are of to good starts for the team offensively, all hitting well over .300. Chris Schwinden will get the start for the Mets who called him up to replace the injured Mike Pelfrey. Last year Schwinden was OK for the Mets making 4 starts striking out 17 in 21 innings and pitching to a 4.71 ERA.
Colorado is 5-11 in their last 16 home games, 6-20 in their last 26 games against a team with a winning record, and 1-4 in Pomeranz’s last five starts. New York is 5-1 in their last six game one of a series, 6-13 in their last 19 games against a right handed starter, and 3-9 in their last 12 games against the N.L. West. Colorado has won five of the last seven meetings of these two.
This one is tough because of questionable pitching for both. Let’s take the Rockies, very small lean in this one though but before placing a wager pick up sportsbook promotion codes.
